    So its like KIK except nobody uses it.

    BBM would have been great 3 years ago when people still had Blackberries. Now that Blackberry is all but dead, it is YAWN

    ^ this

    If you are going to go software then you better give us something that is at least on par with what is out. You can not throw outdated hardware out there and think nostalgia will save you. Nostalgia may get you a look but then people remember why they moved on. Really poor work by rim and it highlights why they are where they are because of their reluctance or inability to keep up with the time.

    That comment was not directed at the HTC One. Personally I think the One is a great piece of hardware.I just think Mr.Chow is doing exactly what you expressed and will have the same end results.

    I know pc747 and I are off topic guys but please bare with us for a moment.I thought Mr.Chow said he would retire if the One didn't do well or something to that effect.

    The other advantage to BBM is if you are texting with someone in a different country, it doesn't count as international

    Neither does skyping.

    BBM is dead and need to crawl under a rock and decompose.

    Thanks for the link.

    In other words in five or so years they haven't progressed much. Might just ignore my turn in line for the app (two days and ticking).

    To sign up is an exercise in futility.

    I got my spot in the line yesterday. Signed in and have the APP installed. Now what? :p

    My contact list is a ghost town. Maybe I can reach out to my Hangout friends and make them switch to a completely similar but less function BBM?

    Good thing I have trim support and uninstalling this APP won't affect my performance!
